When Creative Sketches for Scrapbooking was first published in 2003, scrapbooking idea books were a dime a dozen& and that's about what most of them were worth! Time and again, I bought one, sure it would be useful, but none of them were ever used more than once or twice. Nearly all of the pages were amateurish, or else totally impractical! After all, how many single photo spreads can one person use? Small wonder some of them I never actually used at all![return][return]But seven years later ...more

This was the first of Becky Higgins' sketch books, and is still my favorite. I love that the sketches are arranged in the book by the number of photos the sketch includes, I love that there are multiple examples, by various designers, using the same sketch, and I love Becky's style. This book is a must-have for every scrapbooker! Since it's out of print, look for it used.

If I hadn't already loved BH this book would have pushed me over the edge. Wonderful sketches and beautiful, inspiring LO's. I love how I can flip through for inspiration, go to the sections sorted by number of photos, or look through all the sketches in the back. Wonderful.

This is the best resource for scrapbooking I have ever seen. I have been refocusing on getting caught up, and remembering why I love this book! I can't put a "date read", because I am constantly re-reading it.
